It’s Pedro Time
Why I like Majorca and my new special friend!
Where is the most memorable tourist destination? New York? Paris? No. Majorca! Yes Majorca. With it’s beautiful beaches and numerous seaside resorts you’d be stupid not to go there. The small, Spanish island is the perfect destination for travellers who just want to: shop, eat and relax.
I must have been to Majorca at least three times now and one thing there is definitely no lack of? Restaurants. The expression “eat, drink and be merry” may very well have originated from the little island; there is a bar, club or restaurant on every street! The food, however, is not only plentiful but also delicious! Whether you simply want a taste of home with some fish and chips or you want to try a traditional Paella, there is something for everyone ,and the price isn’t bad either. I went to a little restaurant named The Rhine on my last visit and had a colossal three course meal for under ten Euros!
But the meals aren’t the only large things on the island. The beaches are massive! With clear blue water and hot golden sand the beaches of Majorca must be amongst the best in the world. I remember when I first wandered into the massive pool of blue, aged six, and seeing the small black fish circling me and nibbling my feet. Later that same day we went on a trip to C’ala D’or and found a small cove filled with vibrant, purple jellyfish. At the time I was awe struck and that moment has stayed with me forever.
The hotel I stayed in the last time had possibly the best bartender I’ve ever met. Named Pedro you can image a tall, greasy haired Spanish man with a large six pack. However he turned out to be a small man with a pot belly and a bald head. Good start. On the first day when I approached with my all inclusive band he seemed a nice enough fella’ giving me my drink and wishing me a happy holiday. But by the end of my two week stay I had made a very good friend. He helped us get around, told us the best restaurants and gave me a triple shot of Bacardi and coke. As I said, good friend.
So will I return to the island of Majorca? Yes. Why? Pedro…
And the food!
